've heard this kind of talk before. but america is a different country. voters are rejecting 40 years of gop scare tactics. voters are supporting the obama administration's move to end severe mandatory sentences for low-level nonviolent drug offenders. of course, over at fox, they don't get it. >> they're not pot smokers. they're not pill poppers. >> wait a second. 50%. but the thing, what if the kid has a drug problem? >> then you get the kid to rehab or lock him in the basement or do what you have to do. that's what parents do. >> who thinks that one of these elderly people who have been in prison for a mandatory minimum sentence, that they're going to get out and they're not going to be on public assistance? of course they are. >> so we should keep people in prison to keep them off public aid? we should just lock up people with drug problems. this kind of demonizing and fearmongering is really nothing new for the right. it goes all the way back to president richard nixon. >> america's public enemy number one in the united states is drug abuse. in order to fight and defeat this enemy, it i
defined by what you lost, by what you can't do. you've inspired america with what you can do. maybe you lost your sight but you can still see the truth that our disabled veterans make extraordinary contributions to our country every single day. maybe you lost an arm but you still have the strength to pick up a friend or neighbor in need. maybe you lost a leg but you still stand tall for the values and freedoms that make america the greatest nation on earth. [ applause ] i think of the wounded warrior who spoke for so many of you when he said your life will never be the same but that doesn't mean you can't go on to do amaze things with the second thing you've given. i think of wounded veterans across america and how they used that second chance. volunteering in communities. building home, being a mentor to local kids, showing up after tornadoes, after hurricane sandy to help folks rebuild. i think of the wounded warriors who reached out to the survivors of the boston marathon bombing with a simple message, we stand with you. i think of all the inspiring wounded warriors that michelle and
in america. it's increasingly in the suburbs. if you look at polls out recently, four out of five of adults in this country will in this country at some point struggle with poverty, possibly have to accept food stamps. so this -- i think sometimes some people sort of focus on this old idea of poverty that it's in certain areas, in the inner city. i think we have ronald reagan in many ways to thank for that consistent image about poverty and about people who are poor and taking advantage of the system. it's just not true. poverty is much more widespread. it crosses much more demographics racially than it has in many, many years. and it's very sad. i think you're going to see somebody like cory booker who looks like he will be the negotiation senator from new jersey, he is somebody who wants to come in and really talk about the poverty. the democratic party i think for many years have not wanted to talk about poverty. and it looks like along with folks like karen bass and cory booker, they're going to have these champions to talk about poverty. >> well, you know, i've been around the country,
in oprahhoma. >> we are trying to ignite that love affair that america has with america'sfounding. >> the founding fathers of america sure had -- >> reshape the united states into a progressive liberal utopia. >> for you and for me. everybody. equality, peace. >> oh, no, let's go. let's go crazy. >> let's get done. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. have you ever been in a conversation with a conservative who comes back in any argument you may be having and says, you know what? there are absolutes. tonight's ed show is about absolutes. absolutely change taking place right here in the middle of the country surrounded by red states. tonight i'm broadcasting from minneapolis, minnesota, in the middle of the country where democrats have taken control of the house, senate and governor's office. you know, in the past year we have seen three things, fiscal change, social change and something that we never see anything under republican rule, and that's reinvestment in public education. this state is proof positive when the democrats get control, things change for the be
this was going to be not just a political demonstration. this was going to be a monumental for wlak america. >> you mention the dixiecrats, white southern democrats, but we have a clip -- this was from governor, not a senator, george wallace, one of the preeminent dixie crats of '60s, responding to john f. kennedy, saying positive things about the march. >> the president has said this is in the great tradition. i shall look forward to being there, but at the same time, the great tradition, they have already alerted thousands upon thousands of troops in the area of washington for preparation for this matter and so this great tradition of marching in washington, on the one hand being invited, on the other hand, they're preparing for -- as if we were going to have a civil war in washington. >> i mean, bob, there was -- in 1963 everybody knows everybody thinks john f. kennedy is running for reelection. the question is george wallace going to run against him. for people that did not read through the era, hearing about george wallace, and reading about him now, it might be tempting to underestima
would rather shut the government down than continue to shut america down. >> it's not a bad thing at all. >> shut up, will you? >> this is political blackmail. that's what they are doing. >> you look them in the eye and you say, what is your positive replacement for obama care. they will have zero answer. >> that's not true. i've had an answer. >> they don't have a product to sell. >> it's not a bad thing at all. >> they are not rehabilitating. they a they are retrenching. >> i don't know why senator paul's so out of whack about this. >> the party's big enough for both of us. >> a healthy family debate is not a bad thing at all. >> i worked on my hair a long time and you hit it. >>> we've got a lot to get to today as egypt's interim cabinet met to discuss a way forward following bloody days of conflict. first, president obama heads to new york and pennsylvania to promote education as an engine of economic growth. he's not the only one hitting the road in the days ahead. chris crossing the country to build support for a plan to defund oak care by shutting down the government. it may still
'"i've been an america since birth." he refused to speculate whether or not he'd be eligible to run for president. he said he was going to leave that to legal scholars. >> you know, it's interesting that ted cruz, this has come to sort of bite him back, all of the worry about birth certificates and so forth have come back to bite ted cruz. that the reason being that basically that all this noise had been made over barack obama's birth certificate, and so now ted cruz is forced to litigate this, in my mind, ludicrous absurd issue precisely because there was such a long sustained movement on the american right to question barack obama's birth certificate and whether he, himself, could actually be president of the united states. >> reporter: a couple things on that. cruz was asked, also, if there are any similarities between his situation and questions about his citizenship, and the questions that president obama faced that eventually led him to release his long-form birth certificate. cruz also refused to speculate on that. so he wouldn't, you know, distance himself from it. he also w
to the british government that we had this material already in america and glenn greenwald has it in brazil, it seemed to me to misunderstand the nature of digital communications to be destroying a hard disk in london. but as they were adamant they would go to law, i thought it was simpler to get on with the reporting from america and destroy the copies that we had in london. >> which means agents from the uk government came to "the guardian's" offices with, what, sledgehammers? with -- i mean, honestly, how did it -- like, physically, how did it go down? there was a hard drive on the floor and you watched as agents of the government battered the thing? >> well, this might seem a nice distinction, but i was not going to hand these, this material to the government in any way. so i said we would destroy it, but if they wanted to supervise the destruction, when they could. so they sent along two technicians from gchq. that's the equivalent of the nsa. and they advised on what you have to do in order to destroy a machine so that it is of no use to anybody else and nothing can be retrieved from
alone america. obama, call him a liberal or what you want but he was not on the fringe. he was down the plate of the democratic party. you have guys who are both not ready and also taking really wacko bird positions to -- >> at the same time, a lot of that has to do with the fact where you live and what your views are. there are a lot of people in middle america that don't see ted cruz or rand paul or marco rubio out of the mainstream. a lot of people. as many people don't think they are, as people don't think barack obama is. i mean barack obama -- >> they're not even in the mainstream of the republican party. barack obama was in the mainstream of the democratic party. he may have been inexperienced. >> when these guys came in 2010 they are in the mainstream of the republican party. look at the fact that in 2010 it's not like there were a couple people that snuck. >> office. republicans won the largest legislative landslide on the state and national level i think probably in the 20 -- in a century. it was a remarkable victory for them. the problem that some of them don't understand
. excuse me, the "wall street journal" this week. "america's chronic overreaction to terrorism, we have created an economy of fear, an industry of fear, a national psychology of fear. al qaeda could have never achieved that on its own. we have inflicted it on ourselves." >> look, fundamentally there are two sets of questions that apply in the war against terrorism. the one set of questions deals with the where's it going to happen, what's going to happen, and when is it going to happen. the other set of questions deals with what is it that our enemy, the terrorists, are trying to achieve. what are they trying to induce us to do. take a look at what's been happening over the past week. with a conference call, al qaeda has effectively shut down 20 u.s. embassies around north africa and the middle east. we just had the president of yemen here for a meeting with president obama. he goes back feeling wonderful about his new relationship with the president. next thing the president does is says in effect, sorry, but we don't trust you yemenis to protect our embassies, so in effect we shut dow
in time all america can really do is ask for restraint on both sides. certainly keep our fingers crossed that the bloodshed will end and that the military will respect human rights. >> if we wait and we keep our fingers crossed and we ask for restraint, u.s. officials as we understand until the very last minute before this crackdown were reaching out to their counterparts in egypt asking for that very restraint but they were ignored. so do we have an influence? keeping fingers crossed doesn't seem like it is going to cut it anymore. >> no, it's tragic we don't have greater influence. about the only thing we have right now is the threat of cutting out military aid. quite honestly, a number of us in the senate were willing to give the president the flexibility prior to the august recess. when we come back in september if events don't improve dramatically, i don't think there is going to be any choice than to basically force the hand of this administration and cut off military aid to egypt. >> should he have made that call today? should hathat have been the decision now? >> first, i don't t
a big commitment to america. bp supports nearly 250,000 jobs here. through all of our energy operations, we invest more in the u.s. than any other place in the world. in fact, we've invested over $55 billion here in the last five years - making bp america's largest energy investor. our commitment has never been stronger. >>> we spent a little time talking about the search for a leader. some would say ronald reagan's appeal. it was 29 years ago this week that president reagan officially accepted the nomination. as august rolled around, reagan's presidency was on an upswing at the time. having survived a struggling economic recession of the early '80s, reagan was basking in the globe. the gains that had racked up in los angeles just weeks before when our athletes didn't have to compete against anybody. when it was his turn to address the gop convention in dallas, he reminded the crowd of how much america has changed in such a short time. >> four years ago, we raised a banner of bold colors. we proclaimed a dream of an america that would be a shining city on a hill. we cape togethme togeth
metric testing has indicated that in at least in america, you have jews with the highest average i.q., followed by east asians. these are real differences, they're not going to go away tomorrow. >> that is the guy who jim demint hired as senior policy analyst to crunch the numbers on immigration reform. lo and behold, the heritage study finds when a guy like that crunches the numbers. it turns out that immigrants are terrible. they're so dumb and they can never get smarter. not without better breeding at least. that was really embarrassing for the heritage foundation. it's also embarrassing they never fired that guy once everybody reported what his background was when the report came out and freaked everybody out. after his background came out, they never explained why they hired him in the first place. the heritage foundation is still sights the report as if it's good science. here's the thing about the heritage foundation. jim demint is the president of the group now, the head of research at the heritage foundation is this guy. do you remember him? do you remember david adding to
that brought sweeping republican gains two years later. america seems to be left with the status quo. the gop kept control of the house. the division between the parties is as sharp as ever. that doesn't mean it wasn't worth the ride. we are treated to spicy anecdote like the empty chair in tampa. balls says top romney advisers were sickened. he walked out of the room and threw up. there was insight into the mind set of an obama team ready to engage in hostilities. case and point, jim messina said my favorite philosopher is mike tyson. he said everyone has a plan until you punch them in the face. my job is to punch them in the face. it was fought out in small ways. if 2008 was inspiring, 2012 was negative and nasty. joining us is dan balls, author of "collision 2012." dan, thanks so much for joining the program and congrats on the book. >> thank you. glad to be here. >> we are happy to have you. the future of elections in america, after 2012, given the prolonged and insane nature, what do you think each party learned and how do you think it's going to affect 2016? >> you speak of long campaig
the safest big city in america. and i'm happy to say we are on pace for another record low of shootings and homicides this year. because our police officers follow the law and follow the crime. they fight crime wherever crime is occurring and at the don't worry if their work doesn't match-up to a census chart. >> governor, this is a big part of his legacy. he doesn't want to leave office with the record he has intact and all of a sudden be remembered as the guy implementing stop and frisk on an unconstitutional basis >> he should be remembered to the man who helped reduce violent crime to historic levels in this city. we have an seen a decline across the country but haven't seen anything like the dramatic decline in new york city. you can trash new york city where we will very policing including stop and frisk with chicago where the rate of minority murders in that city is just unacceptable. share lynn is also right when you look at the sticks. look at the statistics of stop and frisk. it reflects basicallity percentages of those hose ultimately are arrested and charged with crimes in t
into this sort of nonsense, he ends up being the image that the rest of america gets about republicans. and people like lamar alexander and everybody else who is complaining about all of this, they are offering him this vacuum because they are unwilling to anger the folks that are going to vote in the primary by going out and offering some leadership instead, they're letting cruz become their voice to get the base fired up which is good for cruz, but as everybody has suggested, it just isn't good for the republican party and the general election. when you start this stuff about blinking, you end up with confrontation that leaves the country in a standoff mess. >> you're talking about a guy actually running for president and using this language and actually asking the american people i guess implicitly to give him the nuclear football. give him the buttons, give him the codes. a guy like that who talks and thinks like this in these cold war terms given the power to blow us up. i mean, at one point do you separate just good rhetoric and rabble-rousing with possibly governing this country

the case for putting america's house in order" and in washington columnist for bloomberg view al hunt. start off talking about a-rod, look tat the front page of "the new york post," a-roid rage has the last laugh in the sixth inning. >> i will say i'm a red sox fan, interest of full disclosure. these are the things that can turn a season around. when the red sox won the series in '04 that spat with jason vary tech and a-rod where vary tech took it to a-rod when he seemed bigger than the game turned his season around. if he gets to play out the rest of the year it's big for the yankees. >> also something wrong with the rules of baseball. after the pitcher goes after a-rod, the idea he's not tossed out of the game, both teams equally warned, that's outrageous. girardi was right, should not have been thrown out of the game. the pitcher should have been thrown out of the game. >> i thought it was just pitching him inside. >> don't you love that? >> what are you talking about? >> crowding the plate and he clearly threw a few balls and a-rod stepped into one. >> no funny business there. >>

for what will be a pivotal race in america's history, in america's history. and that is about getting everyone excited now about what i hope will be that moment in 2017 when we get to say, madam president, to hillary rodham clinton. >> do you buy that? >> thomas you know me pretty well. you know i'm not a huge fan of maureen dowd on politics. i think the excitement that hillary clinton has generated on her own if anything being associated with bill clinton and the politics of the '90s hurt her when it came to the democratic primary last time around. i think as you saw with the event in iowa with claire mccaskill a general excitement about a woman president and specifically hillary clinton who is very committed to those issues. >> she has not made a decision one way or another but leaves us guessing. i want to switch to this topic. harry reid getting backlash for the comments he made and a lot of republican pushback on this from an interesting character who is asking for an apology. but take a listen to what had he to say first. >> we have been now seven months into this second term of
, the boston southy turned crime boss turned fbi informant turned man on the run as one of america's most wanted. nbc's kristen dahlgren is outside the federal courthouse in boston. kristen, this was a 32-count indictment. break down the findings for us. some of the murders he was found guilty of, some of them he was not. >> reporter: yeah, these -- they all fell sort of under this racketeering charge, which is a catch all. there were 19 murders. he was found guilty of committing or being co-conspirator in 11 of them. this all during the time when he was reported to be an fbi informant. we're now hearing outside of the courthouse from some of the victims' families. we heard from pat donahue. her husband michael was one of the murders that was proven in this case. she says today she really feels like she got justice. we also heard from steven davis. he's been very vocal through all of this. his sister debra was murdered, but that was the one charge that was found no finding. so it wasn't proven or not proven. the jury just couldn't reach a finding on that. so he was understandably disappoi
to announce today that the justice department will take a series of significant actions to recalibrate america's federal criminal justice system. we will start by fundamentally rethinking the notion of mandatorily minimum sentences for drug related crimes. >> declaring mandatory minimums both ineffective and unsustainable, he announced the justice department will order prosecutors to omit listing quantities of illegal substances in indictments for low level drug cases. side stepping federal laws that impose strict mandatory minimums. it's one of several steps aimed at curbing overcrowding, massive taxpayer spending and gross disparities within the criminal justice system. let's get right to our panel now. with us from washington is nia-malika henderson and in los angelesing is strategist professor bob shrum, columnist for the daily beast and contributing professor at nyu. nia-malika, he said the moral cost of mass encars ration are impossible to calculate. but they do add up. $80 billion we've he spent to incarcerate prisoners in 2010 alone, 47% of those imprisoned for drug-related crimes. and
that the election for that senate seat is going to be held in october? on a wednesday. here in america, we generally hold big statewide, big federal elections on tuesdays in november. wednesday in october? and, in fact, new jersey already has a previously scheduled big statewide election on a tuesday this november. a big normal election on a big normal election day. tuesday in november. but the u.s. senate seat election between cory booker and the former mayor is going to be held on a different day, less than three weeks before the normal election day on a wednesday. why? because on that tuesday in november, real election day, new jersey governors chris christie, is on the ballot. he's running for re-election as new jersey governor, and as he is making the state of new jersey spend an extra $12 million to hold a whole separate election for this senate seat, less than three weeks before there's going to be an election anyway. amazing. presumably he is going this because he does not want to be on the same ballot with a democrat as popular as cory booker. there is basically no one in politics who think
why that's happening. because nobody in america would -- dan, good luck. we will see you soon. if it's way too early, it's "morning joe." stick around. the fix is next. >>> day of rage. egypt's unrest leads to hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries prompting president obama to cancel a major military exercise. is there more the u.s. will do to stop the violence? plus, some new names headlining in the hawkeye state talk this weekend. but the spotlight still belongs to the superstars on each side. and another surprise headline on what the nsa is up to. an internal review shows the intel outfit broke its own rule thousands times. good morning from washington. it's friday, august 16th, 2013. and this is "the daily rundown." we're watching developing news out of egypt. the country bracing for more bloodshed today. tens of thousands of muslim brotherhood members and their supports are responding to calls for a day of rage. pouring into the streets to protest this week's brutal government crackdown. we're watching crowds demonstrators crossing a bridge through cairo. most likely tryin
as needing to protect our allies, our bases in the region. this is something that is going to require america's attention and hopefully the entire international community's attention. >> in egypt today supporters of ousted president mohamed morsi took to the streets in defiance of orders by egyptian authorities to end their protest. meantime, in his interview with cnn, president obama also addressed the possibility of cuts off u.s. aid. >> the aid itself may not reverse what the interim government does, but i think what most americans would say is that we have to be very careful about being seen as aiding and abetting actions that we think run contrary to our values and ideals. what we're doing right now is doing a full evaluation of the u.s./egyptian relationship. >> nbc's ayman mohyeldin joins us live from cairo. ayman, good afternoon, or good evening for your. we know the protesters took to the streets today. have we seen any clashes? >> reporter: well, the numbers today and the protests today in general were a big test for the muslim brotherhood. obviously in the last couple of weeks the
stories, no nothing. you are cut off. america will pay its debts. it will not default. it will not destroy its credit in the world. and you can threaten. you can scream and yell, but the united states government will not fail in the bankruptcy because of this economic terrorism you on the right purport to be a political philosophy. well, the secretary of the treasury said it less dramatically this morning, but said it just as clearly. any attempt by the right wing to threaten this country with national default will be met with the strongest response, no deals. bashar al assad in damascus, but against those in this country who would jeopardize the country's financial strength. joining me right now are two political pros, democrat steve mcmahon, and republican john fayry. treasury secretary jack lew is warning republicans that unless they agree to raise the debt limit, the united states will default on its debts internationally in mid-october, earlier than some had anticipated. in fact, on an interview today on cnbc, mr. lew had a clear message for republicans, and it's coming right from the
in many pockets in the united states of america and maybe we do need to update the formula and no one has anything or gets that. but to throw out the baby with the bath water doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, especially when you are admitting that there are still problems to be dealt with. >> congressman james clyburn of south carolina, always good to have out the program. thank you. >> thank you so much for having me. >>> bringing back susan page and jonathan allen. i don't know if you guys saw this poll, but it found that 82% of americans say congress hasn't worked hard enough to deserve a long recess. it's not a surprise to me. congress never, at least in recent memory, has not polled very well. but, jonathan, what can get done when they come back? can anything get done? >> chris, they may have oversampled members of congress in doing that poll to only get 82% that thought they were working hard enough to do their job. >> who are the 18%? >> it's not a matter of working hard. i think it's a matter of working effectively and cooperatively and a matter of finding mutual or common
because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing america, you said russia. not al qaeda. in the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> white house -- >> boy, that's a cute line. it's just so dead wrong. it's not even funny. and every single country that's causing problems right now, whether it's iran, whether it's syria, of course we've got the snowden issue now, it is russia at the center of it and russia has now made fools of two presidents, nicole, yours and barack obama. >> right. i mean, look, he's a shirtless thug and he's someone who really has made a fool of this president, who i think earnestly intended to re-set relations but naively thought that was possible. >> can i say, donny twitched when -- >> shirtless? >> look -- >> when the phrase shirtless thug, because -- no, no, willie. >> he did. >> when you said shirtless thug, it was as if donny was walking down like the streets, the mean streets of southampton. >> shirtless. >> that shirtless thug, he said he was go
disagree with his lifestyle choices, he's out there protecting the united states of america, he deserves your respect. >> and you know what, guts. that's what this all boils down to. what we're all talking about. it's just speaking out. mike allen, mike, we started with you. i was just talking about since 2006, republicans have grimaced and hidden in the corners and they've -- oh, what are we going to do about -- these people on talk radio, these people on cable news that are saying these things that are driving off the very swing voters we need to get elected to the white house again. >> yeah. >> guts. they don't have guts to speak out against the treex emmists. mitt romney never had the guts to speak out against the most extreme elements in his party. and he lost in part because he followed extremists down a rabbit hole in iowa, in a caucus process, on immigration, and he got slaughtered among hispanic-americans because of it and he got beaten in other areas too because he never spoke out and had that famous bill clinton sister soldier moment that by the way conservatives cheered when
cities in america. you may think you live there already. we'll tell you the truth from a new survey. >>> hello, everyone. it's high noon here in the east and 9:00 a.m. out west. welcome to "weekends with alex witt." the manhunt is over but a big mystery remains which led police from southern california to the wilderness of idaho. the abductor, james dimaggio, is dead and hannah anderson is alive and well. joe, what do you know? anything new that you're learning? >> reporter: alex, this morning we did get some new information about how they were able to locate dimaggio and hannah anderson. teams were up in helicopters searching the wilderness for any sign of them. near a campsite near morehead lake, they spotted james dimaggio and hannah anderson. they ended up landing and fbi apths hiked 2 1/2 hours before they were able to get to that campsite before there was a confrontation with dimaggio. all we know is that in the end an fbi agent shot and killed dimaggio. we're told a special fbi team is coming out to idaho to conduct an investigation on that shooting. they will be interviewing
